In no time, social media was flooded with attractive pictures of the SES-12 lifting off into space along with timelapses and long exposure shots.

The 5.4-ton (4,900kg/10,800lb) spacecraft, dubbed SES-12, will beam TV, data, and other communications services across the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East.

Elon Musk is the CEO of SpaceX. However, this time the company would not be attempting to retrieve the first stage of the rocket. Instead, the spent stage will simply crash back into the ocean.

Watch a replay of the launch of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral shortly after midnight Monday with the SES 12 communications satellite.

Payer traveled from SES headquarters in Luxembourg to watch the launch of his company's SES-12 satellite.

"Airbus salutes SES's ambitions regarding innovation and responsiveness in a rapidly changing market and we acknowledge their strong support for all-electric satellite technology", said Nicolas Chamussy, Head of Space Systems. That engine is a monster.

The latest rocket features numerous upgrades compared to its predecessor, including stronger landing legs, better landing control and improved reusability.

After operational missions with the crewed Dragon capsule were underway for NASA, SpaceX had planned to launch the private tourist moon mission.

SpaceX has landed these boosters 25 times, and reflown them on a dozen occasions.

Space X has delayed the launch of Falcon 9 from the scheduled date to June 4 due to further testing requirements needed towards the rocket's departure and success.
